I totally agree. It's the biggest leap forward in cloud representation that I've seen in any flight sim to date, by a LOOOOT.

I thought the same thing. It really is incredible.

Is that default FSW? Looks great!

Its almost default.  I discovered that the sky textures still influence/control the ground and airplane lighting so I changed the morning, noon, and afternoon textures to be all the afternoon texture with direct lighting set to RGB178 178 177 (60 0 70 with my editing software).  and then I made adjustments in NVidia CP so it looked good to me.

If anyone has a problem with ground brightness, it can be compensated for fairly easily.  Everything else is default in the pics.

For me, clouds have always been the reason not to go for FSX so I might have to skip P3D as well ;)))

I have to say, as far as an immersive feel....the rain against the windshield, and those new clouds....is most impressive. I'm going to certainly now keep an eye on this....

I am not blind-sided, loyalty-bound to any sim platform. When a developer makes pretty impressive developments, I most certainly will acknowledge it...and will follow/move  on it.

I always have room (just picked up 500 GB's, lol) to enjoy something that should be enjoyed. This is the best real-world 'mood' of rainy/gloomy/threatening I have seen.   If you could have this, combined with XP11's night renderings...it would be a grand-slam winner combo!

Wow.

Sitting in the bush....and smiling looking at this set of screenshots....... :)))

Bert suggested that for myself to continue to ORBX, I might want to pick up P3D v4.   "Hmmmm.....if you can use all your ORBX-to-date within FSW....this is the 'ORBX' direction, I might want to go....P3D looks nothing like this.   I will have to now serioulsy follow the FSW forum...and read...read...sit in the bush...and follow...".

I think DTG are getting it right bringing to the sim things that other sims do not, real weather, ATC, realistic environment get them sorted and it will be the right platform for wide body addons to fly in, And remember this is FSW version 1, and not 2, 3 or 4, I think they will be around for long time in flight sim based on the updates to date.

I agree.  FSW is certainly worth keeping an eye on now.  Until this TrueSky update I wasn't the least bit interested.

Me neither, quite frankly.  But this....TrueSky/inclement weather effects (as default).......this has notched up the 'interest' knob...at this end...yep. My interest in flight simming, has always been on the side of real-world feel...and not so much how deadly accurate to the nines, is every system, main, and sub-system within the cockpit.  It always had to appear...as though I am really there....and this has certainly advanced that genre...

I am also waiting to see what xEnviro 1.7 brings to XP11...but, I certainly would not shoot myself in the foot, and NOT decide to pick this up, if it doesn't match what I see here.  I'd most likely, would---> install this sim, if  xEnviro v1.7 doesn't match this to date.

The clouds certainly look nice.  It's good to see the sim market is still alive after Microsoft's pullout from flight simming.
